Important Things to Remember after a Fire, Flood, or Disaster
Whether your commercial facility has been structurally damaged by a fire, flood, or other natural disaster, there are some things that you can do to look out for the safety of you and your employees:
- Play it safe and immediately evacuate the building/property. Even a small fire or flood can cause serious structural damages and health hazards that may not always be obvious to the untrained eye. It’s best to turn off all electric and gas services and keep out of the damaged areas until the proper authorities deem it safe to return. You may have fire/electrical hazards, gas leaks, mold, or any number of other concerns. You also shouldn’t drink any water in your facility until your local utility or water company has deemed it safe.
- Contact your insurance company to discuss your flood, fire, or disaster policy and claims
- You may begin cleanup, salvage, and drying efforts as soon as possible. It’s recommended that you take photographs to properly document the before-and-after for your insurance company. Be sure to keep any damaged materials as proof of loss.
- Contact a reputable restoration company such as Knight Restoration Services to assess your property’s damages and provide an estimate for the restoration and/or reconstruction costs. While you could restore your property yourself, it’s best left in the hands of a professional. Be aware that restoration services will come first, to be followed by reconstruction and permanent repairs later.
